About Todd J. Zimmer


 


Mr. Zimmer has been admitted to the practice of law for over twenty (20) years. He began to work in the field of Matrimonial and Family Law shortly after entering Touro Law School in 1990. After graduating and being admitted in December of 1993, he continued to work in this field until opening his own practice in 1995. 


 


As a student-volunteer at Touro Law School in 1990, Todd J. Zimmer worked as an Assistant Law Guardian with the Suffolk County Juvenile Rights Bureau. The Bureau houses the law guardians that are appointed to represent children in Suffolk County Family Court matters.


 


Soon thereafter he began doing trial work to protect the rights of abused and neglected children. He also began conducting trials under Bureau’s supervision, representing physically abused spouses seeking orders of protection.


 


Mr. Zimmer next worked as a law clerk for Hon. Bromley Hall in the Suffolk County Family Court. After seeing the practice of law from both the floor of the courtroom and the judge’s bench, he moved to the private sector. Starting in 1992, he spent the next several years working for two different law firms that concentrated in the area of matrimonial and family law.


 


After opening his own law firm in 1995 the practice grew rapidly to include a full-time associate, two “of counsel” attorneys, and a support staff of a paralegals and two legal assistants. He has staffed his offices with the most dedicated, competent and compassionate people in the field of matrimonial and family law on Long Island.


 


Since Mr. Zimmer’s admission to the New York State Bar in 1993, and even before, he has practiced exclusively in the area of Matrimonial and Family Law. The practice includes extensive trial practice, as well as Appellate practice. During that period of time, Mr. Zimmer has been honored with a special recognition award from the Long Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence for efforts in protecting the rights of battered and abused spouses. He has also received a Citation from the Islip Town Board and former Suffolk County Executive Robert Gaffney for work in the area of Matrimonial and Family Law.


 


Mr. Zimmer has served in the past as a member on the Long Island Coalition for Domestic Violence Honorary Board and is currently a Board Member of the Long Island Business Institute Court Reporters Advisory Board where he has lectured to students and faculty on issues in matrimonial and family law.


 


Mr. Zimmer customarily donates countless hours as a guest lecturer and legal advisor for local business organizations, high schools, Parents Without Partners, FEGS, VIBS, Long Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence, National Organization of Women and many other organizations, all in the pursuit of educating the public on issues related to matrimonial/family law and domestic violence.


 


Mr. Zimmer also serves as a Suffolk County Assessment Review Hearing Examiner, presiding over cases involving property tax reviews for residents of Suffolk County. Mr. Zimmer is a member of the New York State Bar Association Family Law Committee, Suffolk County Bar Association Family Law Committee and the Matrimonial Bar Association of Suffolk County. In addition, Mr. Zimmer has authored the book “Divorce and You” which was published in 1998 by Jarrett Publishing Company and distributed across the country. In 2009 and 2010, Mr. Zimmer was nominated by his clients and voted as “Best Divorce Attorney on Long Island” through the Long Island Press.
